The ship, The boat, The Oriana……just some of the names we’re known as within the marketing industry.

We first set sail on the Canberra in September 1993. Since then we’ve sailed every year on ships including the Victoria, Oriana, Aurora and Arcadia. We have played host to over 1,500 agencies and over 10,000 clients.

This year we set sail on the Arcadia on 4th-7th October. It is our 25th anniversary. It will also be the final time the event is held at sea!

Why are we moving off ships?

Time – in today’s world we recognise it’s becoming ever more difficult for marketers to leave the office for 3 days.
Communications – whilst the ships have been an excellent venue over the years, the communications, specifically wi-fi are not up to modern business standards.
Success of our sister event – The Digital Marketing Forum takes places every March at The Grove in Hertfordshire. It sells out year on year with excellent feedback on both the format and the venue.

So what next?

This year we are celebrating our 25th anniversary. As you’d expect demand for this last voyage has been high, with limited client places left and some agency sectors already sold out.

In 2018 the event will move to the 5* Grove in Hertfordshire in November. The format of the event will remain the same – networking, meetings and conference sessions for senior marketers.

If you would like to join us this October, places are limited so do please get in touch ASAP to ensure your place.

Which just leaves us to say a big thank you – to every client, executive, speaker and agency who has sailed with us over the years – you’ve all helped to create an iconic event.

Here’s to the future……..

David Clark
Project Manager
